Philippe Hertzberg, founder of Secret Journeys, answers a few questions about our new website:
Secret Journeys just launched a new website: Why now and what is its aim?
We launched our travel venture with a clear focus of working hand-in-hand with a selective network of partners. The growing demand for our Journeys combined with the development of several new experiences has motivated the building of a new booking process. Our new website was conceived in order to provide the most efficient and user-friendly booking tool for our partners. Our Journeys can also be privatized for a given date and we are continuing to develop this customized approach.
What are the website’s current features and future ones?
The top “Booking Calendar” allows you to see at a glance all scheduled Journeys by date, and to reserve a spot easily and immediately. Our collection of Journeys can be viewed through the “Full Collection” window or via sub-sections such as “Arts & History” or “Fashion & Style.” We are also proud to be listing our first “Testimonials” with very positive reviews from our guests, and will open up a “Partners” section shortly with links to all the organizations with which we cooperate. All of our Journeys are true “co-creations” with valued partners, and we wish to celebrate this collaborative work. Lastly, our “In the News” section showcases some recent articles about Secret Journeys.
Can you tell us about your 2019 plans?
Our mission is all about quality storytelling and creating the most enlightening experiences one can find in and near Paris. We are currently developing a Montmartre Vineyards experience including a tasting and the opportunity to visit its wine cellar. The Versailles Palace and the Towers of Notre-Dame will also be among our next launches with many other exciting Journeys in development. Finally, we will be announcing an important partnership with an international publisher in early January. All these developments and plans are possible thanks to every one of our partners and friends, whom I would like to thank for their continued support and trust.
